Dorothy Provine, Shapely Actress in ’60s, Dies at 75

By DENNIS HEVESI

Dorothy Provine, the leggy, blond actress perhaps best known for her quirky role in the Stanley Kramer movie “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World” and as the flouncy nightclub singer on the 1960s television series “The Roaring ’20s,” died on Sunday in Bremerton, Wash. She was 75 and lived on Bainbridge Island, Wash.



The cause was emphysema, her husband, Robert Day, said.



Ms. Provine appeared in more than 40 film and television productions, starting in 1958… Continue

Movie Stars That Really Were Movie Stars

Real Movie Stars are a by-gone-era now. However, how wonderful it is to learn about them after so long. Thanks to the fans and members here we can share much about are favorite stars that are gone now. My favorite will always be Elizabeth Taylor. She is the very last true star to come out of the Hollywood made "Factory" of sorts as well as Marilyn Monroe.

GAOH May Be Going Bye Bye

Our member Joanne forwarded me an article that states that Ning will no longer be offering FREE service. If this is true, which I believe it is, then GAOH will be closing down. Not only can I not afford to pay for service to keep GAOH going but I'm unwilling to hassle with soliciting funds to keep it going. So, if you come by one day soon and GAOH is gone then you will know why. Here is the link to the article:…

Kiss Me Deadly

Saw a great movie Saturday night on TCM. "Kiss Me Deadly" (1955) starring Ralph Meeker, directed by Robert Aldrich. I'm guessing most of you have seen it (don't know why it took me so long to discover it), but for those who

haven't, its an adaptation of a Mickey Spillane novel with Mike Hammer as the

protagonist. A lot of the acting is over the top and the dialog is

straight out of a True Detective magazine, but overall, it's a really absorbing

film.…

Why Cary Grant is my favorite actor of all time

I was about 12 years old when I saw my first Cary Grant film. It happen to be His Girl Friday and it would become my favorite movie of

all time, along with Cary being my favorite actor. That movie and Cary

himself basically started my love of classic movies, which still carry

on to this day. Most of the films I saw from then with Cary were mostly

his screwball comedies like Bringing Up Baby, My Favorite Wife,…

Affairs of the Heart: The Wedding Night (1935)

To view The Wedding Night click here. The Wedding Night was doomed from the start. It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke. The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
